IDEALS/Internal Web Preferences

The following settings are web preferences of the IDEALS.Internal web. These preferences overwrite the site-level preferences in TWikiPreferences, and can be overwritten by user preferences (your personal topic, eg: TWikiGuest in the Main web).

Web Preferences Settings

  • List of topics of the IDEALS Wiki.IDEALS/Internal web:

  • Web specific background color: (Pick a lighter one of the StandardColors)
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #333366

  • List this web in the SiteMap:
    • If yes, set SITEMAPLIST to on, do not set NOSEARCHALL, and add the "what" and "use to..." description for the site map. Make sure to list only links that include the name of the web, e.g. IDEALS/Internal.Topic links.
    • Set SITEMAPLIST = on
    • Set SITEMAPWHAT = IDEALS.Internal Documentation for IDEALS
    • Set SITEMAPUSETO = ...collaborate on internal documentation, which should still be publicly accessible.

  • Exclude web from a web="all" search: (Set to on for hidden webs)

  • Prevent automatic linking of WikiWords and acronyms (if set to on); link WikiWords (if empty); can be overwritten by web preferences:
    • Set NOAUTOLINK =
    • Note: Use the [[...][...]] syntax to link topics in case you disabled WikiWord linking. The <noautolink> ... </noautolink> syntax can be used to prevents links within a block of text.

  • Web preferences that are not allowed to be overridden by user preferences:
    • warning Do not put any of the View Access Controls (DENYWEBVIEW or ALLOWWEBVIEW) in the FINALPREFERENCES for the IDEALS Web, since the IDEALS.Restricted Web needs to override this in order to block view access.

Help on Preferences

  • A preference setting is defined by:
    3 or 6 spaces * Set NAME = value
  • A preferences setting can be disabled with a # sign. Remove the # sign to enable a local customisation. Example:
  • Preferences are used as TWikiVariables by enclosing the name in percent signs. Example:
    • When you write variable %WEBBGCOLOR% , it gets expanded to #333366
  • The sequential order of the preference settings is significant. Define preferences that use other preferences first, i.e. set WEBCOPYRIGHT before WIKIWEBMASTER since %WEBCOPYRIGHT% uses the %WIKIWEBMASTER% variable.
  • You can introduce your own preferences variables and use them in your topics and templates.
